Our 2021 Season ranges are on sale now and this year sees the return of our unique and ingenious Elddis Avante 868 and Compass Casita 868 touring caravan models.
This 8ft-wide family-friendly layout was launched to great acclaim last year and became an instant best-seller.
It was even crowned 'Best 8ft-Wide Caravan' AND 'Best Twin-Axle for Families' by Caravan Magazine.
Last year’s production sold out and families – who clearly see the benefit of this spacious layout with both double bed and bunk-pods at the rear – are desperate not to miss out on this year’s model.
Caravan Magazine takes a look at the 868 layout – unique to Erwin Hymer Group’s Elddis Avante and Compass Casita ranges – to see what all the fuss is about!
2021 Season Elddis Avante 868, reviewed by Caravan Magazine:
“This 8ft-wide, six-berth caravan has been designed with families in mind – twin bunks in a ‘pod’ at the rear of the caravan and, directly opposite, a fixed French-style bed.
“It’s ideal for those who have younger children (there’s even little lights if they like story time in bed) and the front lounge can be used as two single beds or a large double, so it’s perfectly possible to have grandparents come on holiday, too!
“In the centre of the caravan, you’ll find the bathroom and shower so whether sleeping at the front or the back of the caravan, you can be assured of maximum privacy.
“For 2021, the exterior has been given an update – new sleek graphics on the ‘Carrara White’ aluminium shell. Inside, you’ll find plenty of design flourishes, too, with soft LED lighting, the ActivCare upholstery scheme in ‘Bergamo’ features a hexagonal design on the cushions, while the sofa cushions and curtains remain more neutral.
“As for technical equipment, you can expect a high specification from the Avante and that’s what you’ll get. The caravan is built on an Al-Ko chassis with AKS 3004 stabiliser to keep you safe when you’re towing and the Whale Next Generation system – Elddis “CompleteHeat ensures you’re kept warm all year round. The Thetford K1520 MK2 Black oven/grill ensures you can cook all the family’s favourite dishes just as you would at home and features in the bathroom are more domestic than you might expect with storage aplenty.
“The washbowl has a boutique hotel-style feel and there’s ample room around the toilet so if the whole family are getting ready for bed at the same time, it’s no problem!
“This is a great-value caravan with a huge amount of kit and space for the whole family to spread out.”
The 2021 Elddis Avante 868 and Compass Casita 868 are available to order now at retailers nationwide.
